Beauty Buys: Volume I

beauty buys of 2017

After indulging in the sale at Blue Mercury on Wednesday, I thought it would be fun to share my current skincare favorites and ask you to share what you use and love! I am a product junkie, but also have my trusty go-to's, some of which I've been using since high school. I love asking my sister, cousins, and friends about what they use, too. I am always learning about new products and skincare lines. It's overwhelming how many options are out there!

I would love to know what skincare products you're loving. Comment on my latest Instagram post and tell me all about what's currently making you glow!

Below are a few of my consistent favorites and what I've been loving lately.

Working from left to right in the picture above.

Clarins face wash has been one of my go-to's for years. My mom got me hooked on it and I can't seem to find anything I like more. The face wash is a creamy texture, that suds up and leaves my skin squeaky clean.

My Origin eye cream helps brighten and depuff. I have a couple eye creams and yet this one is the one I reach for each morning.

I tend to switch up my face lotions frequently, solely because I like trying new products. But this Clarins lotion is light and hydrating and one of my current favorites!

I randomly walked into the Kiehl's store this summer and have been using these two products for months now. I am not sure if I can credit one product or the other, but my skin has never felt so soft. I use this line reducing concentrate before putting on this night cream, every other night.

After seeing Something Lately's post on skincare, I wanted to try this Water Drench moisturizer. So when I found a sample size of the facewash and cream I was super excited. I would say that the face wash isn't the best for scrubbing off all my makeup, so I use it when I wake up or when I'm not wearing heavy makeup.

Kai perfume- smells like heaven and/or Hawaii. (Both places I've never been to but can only imagine they'd smell like this perfume).

Currently in my cart:

Need help with de-puffing this holiday season? I know I do! After those late night festivities and red wine & sugar cookies, I'm going to need this.

During these winter months, I always need lip balm. Love this light pink color and it helps plump, too!

Obsessed with the matte lip color from Lancome. It comes in a ton of great colors and this perfect red for the holidays.

Always need a new eye cream! I've been wanting to try this one for years. Love everything Bobbi Brown.

I've heard amazing things about this Midnight Concentrate, so obviously it's in my cart too.

My sister uses this Night Repair and her skin is amazing! Honestly, if I were only buying one item today, it would be this!

These Caviar Sticks are amazing! An easy way to add some eyeshadow to your makeup routine without fussing.


If you've made it this far, THANKS FOR READING! Happy Friday Friday!
